If you don’t know anything about The Expendables, you don’t need to know more than this: Stallone, Statham, Rourke, Schwarzenegger, Li, Lundgren, Roberts, and Austin. If none of those names ring a bell to you, stop reading this site, and kindly never come back.
Here’s the poster for Stallone’s upcoming ass-kicking fest.
Variety is reporting that our beloved Jason Statham just landed another role. They’re reporting that he’ll star in the upcoming The Killer Elite, based on a best selling story by Ranulph Fiennes.
The story is based on real events, the story follows a group of former British special forces members who are being hunted by assassins. Statham will play a former Navy Seal who is forced out of retirement to save his closest friend.
Filming will begin in the fall in London, Paris and Australia.
As cheesey as some of his movies can be (Transporter 3, War, etc.), he’s a tough guy, and would certainly kick your ass if you told him you hated one of his movies. (I’ve seen him do this. He once bludgeoned a guy because he said Transporter 2 could have been better. True story.)
Statham’s next role, no surprise, involves kicking and punching people in their faces. Awesome? I say so.
Jason will be taking on the role of Arthur Bishop, originally played by Charles Bronson back in 1972.
The Mechanic is a tale of Arthur Bishop, who works for “The Orginazation.” Eventually the killer of killers finds himself training the son of one of his victims as the film turns into a case of the pupil overtaking the master.
Filming is set to start this summer in Shreveport, LA. So if you’re int he area, stop by, and tell Jason how awesome he is.
As you know, Slyvester Stallone’s new flick The Expendables is going to be huge. Whether it’s hugely awesome, or hugely horrible is yet to be determined.
Yesterday saw the release of two photos from the set onto the net, presumably by some poor key grip trying to make a quick buck. Irregardless, here they are. The first is an explosion on set, and the second is Sly with Jason Statham.
I only saw the first Crank movie once, before our love of Jason Statham bloomed. The Blu-ray’s been sitting in our theater room courtesy of Netflix for about 6 weeks now, need to get around to watching that.
The poster for its sequel came out yesterday, and is pretty void of any real substance about the movie, but I’m sure there’s more coming. Check it out below:
